JavaFX for ooRexx – Creating Powerful Portable GUIs for ooRexx

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/KonferenzbandBeitrag in Konferenzband


JavaFX is a modern, multi-platform GUI programming environment with an interactive WYSIWYG GUI builder named "SceneBuilder". The JavaFX classes can be employed by Rexx applications that have a need for simple as well as complex GUIs. This presentation explains the JavaFX concepts and how to take advantage of them from Rexx. Working stand-alone nutshell examples will demonstrate how easy it is from Rexx to exploit JavaFX. This infrastructure is so powerful that it becomes possible over time to replace the Windows-only ooDialog-applications with modern GUIs that in addition are platform independent and not only run on Windows, but unchanged under Linux and MacOSX as well!
